Interview with Leola Montgomery
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

I'M SORRY I'M GOING TO HAVE TO REMIND YOU TO TALK TO THE LITTLE BUTTON AND TRY TO AVOID LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW IF YOU COULD.

Leola Montgomery:

Alright. We were so, uh, caught up with emotions. There were tears of joy, we just had a very good time that night. And we called everybody we could, to relate—relay the news to them. When I was home that day, alone, and when I heard the news that the decision had been handed down in our favor, and I was just overjoyed. I was just so happy, I, the first thing I did was to call my mother. And she and I were both were, I think were in tears, when we were talking about it. And I could hardly wait until my family came home that evening. First the children got home, and I told them. And they were very, very pleased, as I was. And then when my husband came, oh, we were all very much elated. And he said a special prayer, he was so happy about it. Thanks be to God that this had been—had happened, that something was going to be done for his people, at last.
